The yellow-orange eyes and unswerving stare of our closest cousin – the chimpanzee – strike a chord of compassion in the most recent Dave White work to alight at Loughran Gallery, Chimp II; aiming to inspire awareness around the challenges we face to overcome the threat of extinction to our closest living relatives he delicately negotiates the balance between beauty and belief, resulting in a work that’s both aesthetically engaging and thought provoking.

An ebullition of blue, black and purple brushstrokes in the style that has become synonymous to White’s acclaimed body of work bring this omnivorous creature to life; this cheeky chap is sure to add some energy into any home!
